CHAPTER 6

A few days later I got a tip off from an informant of mine in one of the ON provinces that security personnel were being withdrawn to the capital inexplicably. The tail on Mikal had seen him visiting several high-ranking security officials along with Blade.

That morning"s cabinet meeting was scheduled for 9:00am, and I made it a few minutes early. I saw Blade walk in with Mikal and Donald.Keller, an old friend of his and the head of the North American Security Bureau, a subdivision of Mikal's agency.

Blade announced that DK would be replacing Ore, who was retiring, as head of the ON Intelligence and Information Commission. The ONIIC was the main intelligence arm of the government. I was a bit surprised by this move, as I had expected it to be subsumed by my Ministry. Blade informed me that I was to now restrict my ministries dealings only to eliminating enemies in recently acquired areas and in FL territory. Internal policing and purification would now be part of ONIIC's portfolio.

Blade reiterated his confidence in the Malaysia plan, even after Lannan reported that more troops that previously thought would be needed to break the barrier.

I met with Lannan that night at my house. We chatted primarily about the war effort. He and I both agreed that the Mindanao scheme was likely to bear the most fruit. We were also worried about DK's ability to impartial carry out his new duties.

I proposed a toast to a new day, and we downed the champagne with ease.

And, that morning was a very new day. Troops garrison across the capital and certain key provincial capitals took over government buildings and offices. Officials across the country were arrested by scores of thug-police, and quickly, efficiently, and robotically detained. I walked into the cabinet meeting that morning with a small army of my agents, and took Mikal, DK, and Blade into custody, and had their offices ransacked.

I was presented with documents from their offices that confirmed my fears. DK was to weaken my agency, and Mikal would use his security services to then eliminate me and my supporters. The DGCB had become the most potent and lethal force in the ON, and that scared them.

They would have risked the ON's stability during wartime and crippled its most effective any-sedition agency just to eliminate a perceived threat to Blade's leadership. That was a betrayal of the highest order--it violated everything the ON was about, not to mention its very survival.

I sighed, and quoted one of Blade's favorite expressions: "Traitors never win. Traitors always die." And, die they did. I mechanistically read out their guilty verdicts just three days later on public television, and watched as they were lead off to the firing range.

I installed Airmax, former ON Party Chair, as the President, and declared myself the new Party Chair and head of the new ON Security Agency, a bureaucracy that consolidated Mikal's, DK's, and my own ministries. Lannan, in return for his loyal support, was permitted to seize all assets from the traitor's estates for his own personal use. I quickly set about eliminating all of the traitor's allies from government, and restoring stability to a fractured ON administration. Order, security, and peace would be achieved, and the ultimate victory of the ON could never be questioned.

With my prompting, Airmax authorized Lannan to begin preparations for the Mindanao plan. It would be a go in a few days. In the meantime, Malaysia would be a decoy to draw the FL's attention. As Blade used to say: "Keep the enemies eyes over there, and they'll never see what you're doing over here."

The ON would prevail, and Borneo would be the first step in that revived effort.

The offensive began 10 days later, with reserve troops called up in massive numbers. An early bridgehead was established in Sabah, and it quickly radiated outward to encompass about half of Borneo. The second front forced the FL to withdraw troops from the frontline in Malaysia in order to stop the rapid advance in Borneo. Significantly weakened, Cyber's forces on the mainland collapsed under the pressure, and withdrew from their forward-most positions to make a stand at Singapore.

Cyber's army was fairly large, and it was my hope that Sumatra and Borneo could be seized, effectively encircling Singapore, first. Cyber could then be starved out, with no greenspace to produce food and a massive population and army to feed and supply.

Unfortunately, Lannan was determined to get his revenge on Cyber for stalemating him in Malaysia, and launched a massive and ill-advised assault on Singapore's heavy defensive network. ON forces suffered huge casualties, and allowed Cyber to break free of Singapore and recapture parts of the southern tip of the Malay peninsula he had given up only weeks later. Fortunately, Cyber wasn't able to push far enough back up the mainland to retake everything he had just lost, but the chance of opening a second front in Indonesia itself was put on hold.

Lannan was later killed during an accident at a shooting range--his gun misfired while he was practicing--and I assumed personal control of the ON's war effort against the FL. I called up several African reservist divisions and deployed them against Cyber in Malaysia while authorizing a fresh ground assault to occupy the remainder of Borneo. I also ordered Pots, the Minister for Technology and Science, to begin developing a virus that could--with any luck--infect the FL's missile interception system, and bring an end to the war.

Finally, I instructed ON agents in the FL zone to eliminate their assigned targets. Unfortunately, Bench, Zarroette, and Cyber survived. Bench's dumb luck, Zarroette's paranoia, and Cyber"s sizeable security detail kept each of them alive. Daytona and the rest of the FL 10 died, so it wasn"t all bad news.

The ON could not lose, and no one's incompetence could be allowed to prevent its victory.

I want to be able to enter in the next fan fic awards, so I need to save 3 episodes for it. If I do too many too soon, I'll be finished before then.
